When Dickens met Dostoyevsky–a tale of stalking and multiple identities
It is all a giant bizarre tale unwound by UC Berkeley’s Eric Naiman. I find myself unable to describe or even to paraphrase it, except to say that it begins with an account of when Dickens met Dostoyevsky, and then takes a turn for the weird.
It is, perhaps, the oddest and even the most salacious thing printed in Times Literary Supplement in some time.
